    Actually, I was wrong - I didn't make the rounding bigger, I just changed it's curve coz it was not a perfect circle...

      Holy cow Sully, I followed your link. Did you notice what ITC is charging for that font?

          That's big bucks for a novelty font. Hey! I've got an old Lettraset rub down type catalog here. Lettraset had it as a rud down font for a few bucks. I don't even know if they are still in business.

            Stand by for breaking NEWS:

   has Shatter as a "family of one font from Lettraset" for $ 39.96. I haven't bought any thing from My Fonts but you might check it out.

            Look close at it—this thing has a slight italic look.

              Cool Text has something real close, if not the same thing, ready to download FREE—they call it "Lower-West Side"

                I couldn't believe it so I followed the process through like I was buying it and as far as I could tell the price is actually for 200 fonts. However, it is very misleading.

                  Hey there MadAmanda — I found that font for $39.96 at My Fonts — and for FREE at Cool Text.

                  That letter has been around for over 35 years — and it's just as hard to read now as back then.

                    @Sully, you're kidding right?
                    This is what I saw on the link you posted:
                    ... is a FREE graphics generator for web pages and anywhere else you need an impressive logo without a lot of design work. Simply choose what kind of image you would like. Then fill out a form and you'll have your own custom image created on the fly.
                    Also there is no licensing stated for the fonts.

                        This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

                              Driver— Yep, you're right. I know this must have made your day—but it is ready to download—and it is free— Ha Ha!
                              AND I did find a real version with the real name of the font at My Fonts for less than 40 bucks.

                              Now, as a Disclaimer: Take a good look at this font. It is a Lettraset release, not the ITC release. For all we know it might be the Russian, rub-down version. However, it just might be the face you are looking for. As mentioned in an earlier posting, the font has a slight italic look. That may be an illusion—who knows? The font is all but illegible. We can not guarantee the fonts. We can identify them and we tell an inquiring mind where these gems might be found.

                              If this is a real job with a real client, this $39.96 font shouldn't break anybody's budget.
